Of course all of the good stuff is on the exceptions list, including the 'Earthquake' tools. Shucks.

Back in the day, a few used to talk about "other" tools...
https://www.astrosafari.com/viewtopic.p ... 81#p942281

So - in the Spirit of 1776-2020 - we bought a varmint gun. Jeannie says, "the squirrels are having their way with the birdfeeder we suction cupped to the window". Until now, I just opened the window, waved my arms about wildly making faces and yelling.

So... here's our Ruger Wrangler.

We just inherited a S&W Model 34 in .22LR from my husband’s uncle (and a Ruger Blackhawk in .41 magnum, too) that could be a decent varmint gun. Unlike the Model 10, though, it’s just sorta ehhh to shoot. It’s not bad, terrible or unpleasant, it’s just boring. The rear sight needs adjustment - it shoots left no matter who pulls the trigger.

That Ruger isn’t exactly fun to shoot. It’s not like shooting a .44 magnum, but it’s not .38 special, either. It has that weird grip plus it’s a shorter barrel. My husband decided it’s like hitting an oak 6x6 with a 1 lb hammer. Oh - and even the cheap ammo is about $1/round. Ouch.

What’s the finish on that Ruger? It looks a little bronze in the pic, rather like Cerakote.

Like the Cerakote job my husband did on my 1911 when he accidentally contaminated the titanium Cerakote with black exhaust paint (he cured both jobs in the oven at the same time). My intention was a subtle two-tone, with silver and very slightly darker, but this is what he did

Hey...! Someone who may know of this gun. I did a lot of reading and tried a used one at the range a few months back.
GUN IS HEAVY... impressive - all steel.
Single action, which kicks Jeannie's *** - that's a bummer, but she'll be in no hurry.
My strong machinist/mechanic hands handle it easily, going thru the motions of a full cyl ( 6 shot ).
I recover sightline real well and fast - I am pleased. WE can't wait for our baby rounds to get here.

5" barrel and the gun overall, fairly well rec'd. Around the pistol aficionados - it did / shot / handled well.
When you say, "weird grip" - are you referring to compared to most other pistols w/ a finger grip style handle/grips?

This gun looks and feels like the heavyweight cap gun I used to carry 2 of back in the day when I was 7.

Yes, it is Cerakote, seems to be the higher end finish - shows no prints, cleans up easy, looks great.
I really like that 1911, but is almost too handsome to play. I'm sure sure you'll correct on that... :D

Saw one for $162 where I got our S&W 2.0, but after the fees at the pickup loc. - I broke about even - plus I got to handle and shoot before we left. Jeannie almost bought a purse and I forgot a holder sleeve/holster/storage something. Darn, might have to head back.

Ammo - 22 anyway, is still .10 a shot, 9 and .223 is still around .30 with Hornady Self Def in at $1 a shot !! Still have the 2 free boxes of 25 I got with the Big 9 mm from S&W. Bless their heart.

Our Ruger has a weird grip, the name of which I can’t remember at the moment. Bird something? I dunno. It’s awkward. It’s also single-action, gate load.

Like this, but wooden grips:

I’ll get pics tomorrow.


That 1911 is the sweetest shooting gun ever. The trigger is, as an RSO who tried it said, sexy. First mag, all in the 10. Tore the center out of it with the next 2 mags. The Cerakote is really durable and wipes clean.

Interesting - to say the least.
Wonder if anyone thought of doing a 5/16 or 3/8" socket ...
- or a set of 1/8" or 5/32 ball-nose allen wrench styles.

I'm also going to get some solder slugs, saw those in the same video I found the crimper. Which looks like it makes some nice hexagonal crimps.
I don't have a high powered iron, the slugs you drop in to the lug and melt with a torch and stick the cable in.
I'd never seen em before, look easy to use for bigger cables.

Just picked up a Bosch plunge track saw. Really liking it so far. Ripped some 3/4" baltic birch plywood for stair parts, super clean cuts.

Nice Walker, Thought about one of those for years but the truth is I'm cheap.
40 years ago I bought an 8' Johnson I beam level from a druggie laborer for $20. He wanted $50 but it wasn't reading true and I proved to him it was off and told him I would buy it for a straightedge knowing I could reset the vials. Haven't gotten around to that but use it all the time with a pair of clamps for sheet goods.

Can that track be extended? and use other tools say a router?

The track is 2 pieces, 63" each, and can be extended with a nice wedge plate (like it better than the Fess system). I think I will buy a shorter section for sheet goods. The track is a little floppier than the Fess but the interlock is better. The Bosch saw will work in the Fess track by removing a plate from the bottom of the shoe which is a bonus as we have one of those on the job site. With the rubber strips on the track, we rarely use the clamps which saves a little time during set up.

This works really nice for ripping plywood or straightening lumber. We have been working with a ton of barn board on the current job, so being able to straighten a 14-18' board is nice. Just have to watch out for hidden nails!!!! I think it will work out much better and be more portable than a table saw for a lot of jobs. I only run a 10" portable Dewalt table saw with a DIY outfeed table. Table saws are handy but as you know when ripping finish material, all you have to do is breath wrong and you mess up the rip, even with a feather board sometimes!

We used a track saw for a window replacement job last year. The trim detail was changing and we needed to cut back the siding just a little. We screwed the track to the wall, made the cuts perfect. Could not have done it better/faster or easier with any other tool I believe. Being able to smoothly plunge with no wiggle would have been nearly impossible to achieve in the conditions we were in, and it had to be perfect.

I have seen a kit so you can mount a router or laminate trimmer. I might see if my kids can 3D print me one. Might even be able to just modify a piece of Lexan. the saw pretty much rides down a small raised ridge. Could run the router off the back of the track I think

I've been wanting one for quite some time, glad I bought it. We're not cheap, we're frugal!

18' ???
Obviously you need to reposition, must be super accurate if you can move it and hit the same mark. Good deal.

As for a table saw I use a portable also, if you really need a cabinet saw there is no substitute IMO (I go to a buddy's shop) and in my experience 99 out of 100 times when you need a rip or long straight cut your better off moving the tool as you can with your new toy. So many wannabees destroy new tools and waste material attempting things like dadoes or rabbets on large pieces moving them through a table saw when moving the tool would have been much more efficient.

Frugal eh? my mom used to say she had scotch blood,
I think it was Johnny Walker :lol:

It's not hard to scoot the track along if necessary for a long cut. Don't have to do that too often.

Copy that on table saws! Drives me nuts watching guys feed a finish board like 3' at a time, regripping and making jaggedy rips.

You should treat yourself to on eof these!
